In 1948, Tennessee Baptists recognized the importance of retreating from the world and seeking God’s presence. Thus, Camp Carson and Camp Linden were born, now Carson Springs Conference Center and Linden Valley Conference Center.
Nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Carson Springs is truly a place where you can experience God. With its scenic beauty and quiet stillness, Carson Springs is the perfect place to meet God. From the top of English Mountain, Carson Springs property overlooks the Great Smoky Mountains.
Linden Valley provides a special place for your group to come worship the Lord in a tranquil, riverside setting. The beauty of God’s world is evident while walking on the riverwalk, conversing with others while sitting in a rocking chair, or challenging yourself on the ropes course.
For 60 years the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board has provided a getaway through the Tennessee Baptist Conference Centers in which churches, as well as non-profit groups, can break away from the busyness of life to connect with God and others.
